School Violence

Immediate support can reduce trauma responses and help restore a sense of safety again.


Not everyone who experiences or hears about school shootings or school violence will be traumatized by the event; however, everyone can benefit from swift action to help acknowledge what happened and be a source of comfort, support, and safety.

On this page you will find resources from many reputable organizations.
